There is a new addition to the Marmalade office.
Apart from Justin and Steph who have joined us to research and assist in developing our new six part history, cookumentary series Bia Duchais, there is another addition to the Marmalade Production Office – a handsome and substantial bronze Radharc gentleman.
Marmalade was honoured to win the prestigious Radharc Award for our documentary The House. The Award is presented every two years to the producers of documentaries of outstanding quality, which address national or international topics of social justice, morality or faith. The documentary does not need to be of any religious adherence, but it should portray positive human values and should imply a challenge to the moral conscience of the kind that distinguished many of the Radharc films. And we think The house does.
Accepting the award on behalf of Marmalade Films, Producer of The House, Daniel Hegarty said “We have had the privilege of being nominated for an few few awards for The House but it is both fitting and an honour that our first award at home is this Radharc Award.” Later, Daniel said “We are very proud to win the Radharc Award because I hope the ethos of courage, quality and innovation with which Radharc was founded is reflected in the way that we make our films.”
The Radharc Awards honour the memory of the late Fr Joe Dunn, who co-founded ground breaking Radharc Films in 1961.
